Treadmill

Hi. I'm seriously considering buying a treadmill so that my new found love of running doesn't get scuppered during the Winter months. There's two for sale locally. A Jessica Ennis 12kph one, and the Reebok I Run. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or experience with these? The main thing I need is one which folds away quite easily as it will not be permanently up. It would need to go away after each run. I understand they have to have some weight due to the mechanisms. If this is not allowed on here could anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks again 😊

Is there no chance you can run outside throughout the Winter...? If you are in the UK.. apart from icy conditions and deep snow, it is possible and loads of fun :)

I shall be following this as I'm thinking the same thing , I worry about knackering my knees on a treadmill as I've only ever ran outdoors

I'm with Oldfloss - don't desert the great outdoors! Autumn and winter is the best time to run! What's that saying? "There's no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes"!... but then, that's just me - the important thing is to keep runnning, so if this is the way for you, good luck.🙂🏃🏽‍♀️

The trouble I suspect, is not the bad weather, but the lack of daylight hours. I have been doing my midweek runs before work. I stopped as it is now dark and I have no interest in running in the darkness. Soon it will be the same in the evenings,leaving just the weekends for running.
